Starting in the summer of 2010, John felt prompted to support disadvantaged people in the land of Israel who were in desperate need.
Now, backed by many churches and individuals here in Britain, the ministry presently sends much assistance to:
- Pro-life groups
- Young children
- Holocaust survivors
One of the major items that John now posts is medication through the ministry: ‘Vitamins for Israel.’
The work has grown remarkably in recent years with support now going to 24 different outlets in Israel.
Information supplied by John Harrold:
“During a visit to Israel in October 2011 I found out that the minimum price for vitamins in Israel was about £6.00 whilst the average price in Britain was between 50p – £1.30. Paracetamols in Israel were £2.50 whilst the same box in Britain was about 20p.”
Holocaust and Ghetto Survivors
“There are some 200,000 Holocaust and Ghetto survivors who live in Israel. Of this total half live below the poverty level for Israel. Some 20 of these survivors die weekly. My aim is to help all of those remaining 100,000 survivors, who are very elderly and in poor health, before they depart this world. I want make their latter days better than their former days while we can. We owe it to them for all the centuries of hatred that the so called Church has given to God’s chosen people.”
“As of October 2018, we have now sent out over 4.3 tonnes of aid to Israel in the 5 years, since September 2013, when I started to keep records of our ministry to the poor and needy. I give thanks to the Lord for being allowed to do this work and many thanks to the people who help me.”
The ways that you can be involved:
- Pray for us to have more open doors.
- Send a donation so that we can buy the medication here in Britain and send them to Irsael.
- Send a box of vitamins etc to me directly.
A comprehensive list of all required items sent to Israel can be obtained from John.

“1 Now the LORD said to Abram,
‘Go forth from your country,
And from your relatives
And from your father’s house,
To the land which I will show you;
2 And I will make you a great nation,
And I will bless you,
And make your name great;
And so you shall be a blessing;
3 And I will bless those who bless you,
And the one who curses you I will curse.
And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.’ “ [Gen 12:1-3/nasb]
“25 but now, I am going to Jerusalem serving the saints. 26 For Macedonia and Achaia have been pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the saints in Jerusalem. 27 Yes, they were pleased to do so, and they are indebted to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in their spiritual things, they are indebted to minister to them also in material things.” [Rom 15:25-27/nasb]
“40 The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ ” [Mth 25:40/nasb]
